Yes the second number does tell you the sidewall height of the tire, but it's a ratio of the tread width, not a hard measurement number. Check out the Guide to Leveling & Wheel and Tire Sizing linked in my signature, it explains how to calculate the total height of a tire.

Hey I figured I would add some information to anyone out there don't a front level with only a 2.1 setting. I have a 2011 sport and did the bilstein 2.1 level. I'm running a 295 60 20 trail grappler on a fuel wheel with 1 for an offset. I do occasionally get a bit of rubbing on the back side of the fender well when the wheel is turned most of the way and the suspension flexes a bit. Just an fyi for anyone choosing this level option. I think if I had to do it again I'd go to full 2.8 and possibly add a spacer if I thought the front looked nose. high. now I am very happy with how the truck looks right now but if you wanted to eliminate any rubbing that should do it I'm assuming.

Is a Bilstein at 2.1 the same as a 2" HBS spacer?

As far as height goes, yes. But the Bilsteins will provide a better ride.

Sorry, I just saw this. The wheels are Fuel Anza's and yes, they come with a plastic center cap.
